in reply to Search CSV for multiple parameters

At the end you say you are not opposed to using DBI. If you have a database, and the ability to use DBI, why the hell would you want to create a search engine from a CSV? That is ludacris, write a parse and a simple table structure and fill it in. Then setup a simple search engine script from the DB. Easiest and most efficient answer I can think of.

    The reason I'm using a CSV file is that's what I'm given by my vendor. I'd love to not have to deal with a CSV file and just use a database but as this is only for reading, not writing to, it seemed like overkill to get the new file, read the file in, parse it, write it to a database, then have to deal with DBI overhead just to read some phone numbers out of the file and display them on a webpage.
      But you can read from the vendor-delivered file *without* any changes through DBI with DBD::CSV.
